Chevrolet Volt 2016-2018 Oil Reset Guide

GM’s second-generation electric car with a backup gas engine is much improved. It is quicker and quieter, rides more comfortably, and has easier-to-use controls. Electric-only range is 50 miles, at which point the engine kicks in to extend the range. It takes 4.5 hours to recharge the car using a 240-volt connection. We got 38 mpg in gas mode. This new 1.5-liter engine acts as a generator, which eliminates the range anxiety common to electric-only vehicles. Visibility is still limited, and the rear seat is cramped and awkward to get into. However, the infotainment system is among the best. The Volt’s tepid heat makes the heated seats and steering wheel must-have features.

Engine Oil Life System

The engine oil life system calculates engine oil life based on vehicle use and displays the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message when it is time to change the engine oil and filter. The oil life system should be reset to 100% only following an oil change.

Resetting the Oil Life System 

1. Select REMAINING OIL LIFE on the DIC menu.

2. Press and hold ĂĽ for several seconds while the Oil Life display is active to reset the Oil Life system.

3. 100% OIL LIFE will be displayed when the oil life system is successfully reset.

Chevrolet Volt 2010-2015 Oil Reset Guide

An electric car with a backup engine to extend its typical 35-mile electric range, the Volt feels quick, quiet, and responsive, with a taut ride. It only seats four, the rear seat is cramped, and visibility is poor. Once the lithium-ion battery is depleted, the 1.4-liter engine acts as a generator to extend the range by 315 miles. We averaged the equivalent of 99 mpg in electric mode and 32 mpg on premium when it switched over to gasoline. Recharging takes 4 hours using a 240-volt supply and 10 hours with 120 volts. For 2015, the battery storage capacity is increased from 16- to 17.1-kWh, probably leading to more EV-only miles.Chevrolet Volt 2010-2015 Oil Reset Guide
